Pedological and agronomic survey and sampling in the Euganean Hills

You are here

From 12 to 15 October 2015, UCO, UNIPA and UNIPD teams, have analyzed the three sample areas chosen for the pedological, botanical and agronomic study in the Euganean Hills:
1) The gardens of the Benedictine monastery of Praglia, where we interviewed the abbot Norberto, and the archivist of the monastery Mr. Guillermo who explained what was the historical agricultural management and how they do now;
2) The vineyards of Campagnola and Villa Alessi agritourisms at Faedo, where the typical wine of the Hills -the Moscato- is made, and where they have recovered the types of traditional vineyards of Colli that had been lost;
3) The terraced landscape of the old Castle of Baone, which is evaluating the change in land use from the Napoleonic land register of 1828 until today.
